Oh I espicially love it that, if I transfer money between my accounts (within the same bank) I get charged a fee in one account for the sending of the money & another fee in the other account for recieving it! Two fees for one 'electronic transaction'. & worse, I knew about the first fee obviously, but I never even noticed the second until, one month, it seemed that the number of electronic transaction fees in my recieving account seemed quite a bit higher than it ought... but turned out to be exactly the right number when I added in all the times I'd recievd money into the account by electronic means. These guys must be making a packet off this little racket!!!

& as for #9, I want to know why the word dyslexic is so hard to spell!? :) My little boy is having enough trouble with learning to read, the chances of him ever being able to spell the name of his disorder are... well, I'm sure you can guess. Even dyslexics who learn to read relatively easily always tend to have difficulty with spelling. Someone was definitely feeling sadistic that day!!!

I used to have a variation of the first sentance as my siggy a long time ago untill someone took offence & got all het up on behalf of dyslexics everywhere apparently. Whomever invented political correctness should perhaps be introduced to the concept of cranial impairment with the aid of a vertically challenged piece of rapidly moving metalic compound. The ability to laugh at ourselves is an essential survival skill. ;)
